Urgent Attention

At the November 2010 meeting of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) in Baltimore, a motion was presented by Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, archbishop of Galveston-Houston, that the USCCB create a policy statement on physician assisted suicide.

Cardinal DiNardo explained that the Pro-Life Committee had met in September 2010 to discuss the increased activity by states to legalize physician assisted suicide. Its members “realized that the Catholic Church in the US needs to become more informed, and more importantly, mobilized to combat this renewed threat to human life,” he said.
